Tarzana, CA, December 17th 2005. FabricLink and Textile Intelligence Magazine present this Supply Chain Panel of experts to explore how consumer ECO Think is impacting buying trends and the textile technologies and innovations for the outdoor market. Whether today's consumers want goods that are hard-core eco, or prefer going green-lite, consumers are interested in pursuing a sustainable lifestyle.

All textile-based suppliers, manufacturers and retailers are invited and urged to attend this special event. The Panel will focus on efforts in education, accessibility and price sensitivity in the eco-friendly fabric marketplace. Join the conversation and learn the latest consumer research on consumer eco-awareness and purchasing habits, and what it can mean to your bottom line.
